Monument to the bandeiras

Monument to the Bandeiras (O Monumento às Bandeiras) is a large-scale sculpture by the Italian-Brazilian sculptor Victor Brecheret (1894-1955) at the entrance of Ibirapuera Park in São Paulo, Brazil. It was commissioned by the government of São Paulo in 1921 and completed in 1954. It commemorates the 17th-century bandeiras, or settling expeditions into the interior of Brazil. The monument, given its size and location, has now become an integral part of the landscape of São Paulo.

The monument was erected in the south central area of the city in Armando Salles de Oliveira Square (Armando Salles de Oliveira Square), opposite the Palácio 9 de Julho, headquarters of the Legislative Assembly of the State of São Paulo.
